Retail Releases: 10-17-2011 through 10-23-2011


Sony Playstation 3
10-18-2011 Batman: Arkham City Trailer
10-18-2011 Rocksmith Trailer
10-18-2011 Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One Trailer
10-18-2011 JASF: Jane’s Advanced Strike Fighters Trailer
10-18-2011 Everybody Dance Trailer
10-18-2011 Dance Magic No trailer

Don says: “The PS3-exclusive Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One is going to be overshadowed this week by the Dark Knight himself, as the sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum finally hits retail. Two dancing games, and a probably-not-near-as-good-as-Ace-Combat flying game also come to store shelves this week. Obviously, I’m going to recommend Batman. Also note the PSN is getting three major releases this week, all of which we will be reviewing; Rocket Birds, Payday, and Dungeon Defenders.”

Nintendo Wii
10-18-2011 Family Fued 2012 Edition No trailer

Don says: “Umm. Wait for Zelda?”

Microsoft Xbox 360
10-18-2011 Batman: Arkham City Trailer
10-18-2011 Rocksmith Trailer
10-18-2011 Otomedius Excellent Trailer
10-18-2011 Tropico 4 Trailer
10-18-2011 Minute to Win It Trailer

Don says: “Batman: Arkham City is pretty much the only thing I am recommending this week. But also, Dungeon Defenders is coming out on XBLA as well. Minute to Win It might be a viable option for those looking for mini-games (what I gathered from the trailer) and Kinect/Avatar use.”

Nintendo DS/3DS
10-17-2011 Professor Layton and the Last Specter [DS] Trailer
10-18-2011 Pet Zombies [3DS] Gameplay Footage

Don says: “Professor Layton gets a lot of credit for being one of the best franchises on the handheld, so either you are already buying this, or you probably should. And pet zombies. I personally want those. In real life, though a game will suffice.”

10-18-2011 Airline Tycoon II Trailer

Don says: “I thought the trailer looked pretty cool for Airline Tycoon 2. But then again, I am into simulation and “tycoon” games. That said, obviously, it’s not for everyone.”

    No love for Tropico 4? I adored 3.
